BFLS complete Strata SE1 - first building in the world with integral wind turbines
Strata SE1 is a 148m high 43-storey residential development that creates a dynamic new landmark on the London skyline. The first building in the world with integral wind turbines, it attempts to set a new benchmark for environmental strategy.
This 408-apartment development is a major catalyst for the ongoing regeneration of the Elephant & Castle area in central London, its modest footprint-creating additional areas of public realm at ground level. The scheme also includes an adjacent five-storey pavilion building comprising residential and retail facilities. The client’s brief called for a concept embracing energy efficiency, targeting an EcoHomes assessment rating of ‘excellent’. Located in one of the Mayor of London’s Energy Action Areas, Strata SE1 embraces sustainable design and the latest renewable energy technologies.
